't know what to do with fat to get paid taxes, fall also walls but they are not able to take part in the things of the alexandria citizen was about to take part in. this is part of a program that the young local attorney had been working on for some time. >> he was a native of alexandria? wanting to be a lawyer for two reasons, one, there was a lawyer you're in town, thomas watson, who rented space from his father, and he became fascinated with what the lawyer did. the letter he took a trip on with his brother to d.c. and they were coming back and ask to move from the seats once the streetcar brought in alexandria by a patient that was there and they refused to that i believe there was tucker's brother all those that refuse to move from his seat and when they got off the street cars the woman filed that and so i sat down a policeman to have the young, old and a rusted and luckily the charge was confirmed out because the boys were really scared the charges would not be thrown out, but the judge felt like they hadn't created in the disturbance and they were not trying to do anything
critical topics today. so what are the fundamental issues? well, with taxes we know ronald reagan spent much of his life trying to cut them for the average american. he was convinced that it was the man or woman on the street who knew how to spend their dollar more wisely than a distant federal government, and he did all in his power to prove it by cutting taxes. when governor jeb bush was in office, he cut taxes on floridians by $20 billion. let's talk about the size of government. when ronald reagan was in the white house, he dramatically reduced the ate rah of growth in federal spending and strove to reduce the size of the federal government. when governor bush was in office, he vetoed more than $2.3 billion in earmarked for higher state spending and retuesdayed the size -- reduced the size of the state's government payroll by 13,000 people. when ronald reagan did that on the national level, he did it with a purpose in mind. it was to spur the free market, create opportunity and provide incentives for businesses to frau. in his years in office, over 20 million new jobs were created i
they can do is if you overpay your taxes, then when you normally would get a refund back, they're allowed to keep your refund. but how do you solve that? everybody who pays income taxes, you just increase your deductions so you're not overpaying your taxes. so really the trade-off isn't going to be do i pay this $1,000 fine for a lot of people versus saving $7,000 by not getting the insurance until i have to. it's going to be, essentially, paying zero fine and then going and saving the insurance premium that's there. $7,000 you'd save each year that you're healthy or $20,000 you'd save each year that your family's healthy is a lot of money to save. it's hard to believe that most people would pass up saving $20,000 a year for their family when i'm sure there's lots of other things they could go and spend their money on. but you could only imagine what happens if everybody decides that they want to go and save that 20,000. this program that was being set up as supposedly a way of making sure everybody's going to get insured is going to find very quickly that nobody's going to want to go and
that does not tax people because there's a saying there, you know, here we have no taxation without representation, and that there it's no representation without taxation. and the royal family doesn't tax. therefore, you don't get the representation. but oil wealth, obviously, funds the jobs of saudis, and most all saudis work for the government. 90% of the workers in the private sector are foreigners. so there are 19 roughly million saudis and eight to 9 million foreigners in the kingdom. because energy is subsidized and cheap, people waste it. and it has now become again a subject in the saudi press and discussed among saudis that what's going to happen if we continue to use more, and we're blessed to export come and its exports of oil to fund our lifestyle. now, it is possible that the government will find a way to tell people we're going to cut the subsidies, but in this post arab spring environment, they are inclined to take things some people. and the country is $500 billion in foreign reserves, so it's hardly broke, but there are saudis financial institutions who estimate tha
changes in later parts. adoption of the income tax fundamentally changed the role of the federal government via the states and not generate so much revenue it completely has the states do anything it wants. the 16th amendment, which changed the senators -- these to be elected by state representatives for now by the people as fundamentally change the structure because congress no longer contained representatives of the states as entities. and of course the civil war amendments, 13 or 14 and 15. if anything change the structure was the civil war in the post-civil war amendments. one of the things that kept coming up in the office is what is the meaning of section two of the 13th amendment in section five of the 14th amendment an equivalent language issue with this power shall have the authority to enforce these causes by appropriate legislation. many of the statute's expanding national into it had been based on one of those enforcement causes. the most common in section five of the 14th amendment. i mentioned in my talk that ben professor bork come in the first time he was at a mee
for graduation. i don't know about you but when i went to school i went to school in el paso taxes i grew up on a ranch it was too far from school so i went to el paso with my maternal grandparents so i took my schooling there. we had six all the time and i got sick and tired of it. [laughter] but that is a lot better than having nine. so i was very concerned when i announce my retirement about the lack of any nationwide attention of teaching of civics so i decided i could do a little volunteer work and get started with the plan we have the ipad and i everything so i thought icivics would be good and it is. [laughter] but what i did was the most wonderful group of teachers who really know the subject and what these people should know about civic stand with their help of some experts of writing exams we've put together the icivics web site and so we create games it is i want you to look at it. we have games that young people play and they are fun to play now 19 are up and young people get on and they will stay on all night and tell parents make them go to bet. teachers find

on in the west, we had a tax on the supply lines that became so serious that i was told i might have to impose food rationing on my staff because we couldn't get food through. so the situation as i felt very serious we were stretched thin and i suggested in a memorandum to secretary rumsfeld that he should continue deploying another or two of the american or not american night in a specified. between the times i spoke often about my concern particularly at the quality of the iraqi forces. there was the area that concerned me. that was this desire to believe that the iraqi scud replace americans in the spring of 04 as it happened the force is essentially collapsed and the surprising we just talked about. >>> at next we hear from the former commander of the forces that operate at the abu ghraib prison in iraq in 2003 and in 2004.o >> it's very important for people to see your book and listen to what you have to say c to understand just how little training is conducted because later onlems in it that contributed to the difficulties you see in iraq. >> correct. >> how many drill weekends a month?
